Product Description

Size: 27"

Product Description

Winner of the Arthritis Foundation Ease-of-Use Commendation, this lightweight bypass lopper maximizes cutting power while minimizing effort. It features our patented PowerGear gearing mechanism to multiply your cutting force near the middle of the cut where resistance is greatest. This makes cutting three times easier than single-pivot loppers, and the smooth-action design eliminates the jarring conclusion at the end of cuts. A razor-sharp, precision-ground blade stays sharp and resists rust, and a low-friction coating makes every cut even easier. In addition, lightweight, ergonomically designed DuraFrame handles make our compact lopper easier to grip, carry and maneuver when cutting at awkward angles.

I purchased this lopper from Amazon a year ago, and have been using it regularly to cleanup my yard. This lopper really makes you feel like Superman the way it slices through branches, both green and dry. For very large branches, I will place one handle on the ground and step on the other to complete the cut. The only slight negative is that you have to open the jaws wider than a non-ratcheting lopper to open the jaws to a sufficient capacity. This is only a slight negative because you really can cut those larger branches with this lopper. With most non-ratcheting loppers, you cannot. In anycase, you would not want to use this lopper to cut the small and soft stuff because of the ratcheting action forcing you to open the jaws wider. I recently purchased a Fiskars 21-Inch PowerGear Bypass Lopper with 1-1/2-Inch Cutting Capacity #96276935A for someone, and I can tell you that the 27" Power Gear is much superior. The handles on the 27" are bigger and feel stouter. The biggest problem with the smaller Fiskar is that it uses metal gears, and they do not cushion the shock when completing a cut. Using it can be quite jarring. With the 27" Fiskar, the gears are made of wide plastic teeth that absorb shock very well. I highly recommend the 27" Power Gear over the other model.

I spent a few days researching about loppers before purchasing and now that I've received and tested this Fiskars 9632 27-Inch PowerGear Bypass Lopper, I can say I'm very satisfied with my decision.
What I tested on: guava tree (tested on this because it's the hardest we have around the house--if the lopper can cut this, then everything else would be a piece of cake)
Branch diameter: various sizes up to about 1.75"

First, before reading on, you can probably research how guava trees compare in hardness to those you might have around your house just so you have a point of reference. For us, it is probably the hardest wood around. For 1" or less in diameter, it really is no exaggeration when I read it "cuts like butter". I could cut the guava branches quite *effortlessly*. (I tried, just to see, and could actually use an index and middle fingers on each hand to cut the said size of branches... although with some effort when approaching the 1" sizes.) For 1" diameter or above, it starts to take a little bit of effort but is definitely still quite incredibly easy.

Cutting other types of trees is like cutting pieces of paper...it just makes me laugh sometimes how incredibly easy it snips off branches compared to the axe I used to use.

About the size. At first I thought 27" seems too long, but after testing, I think it's just perfect. The next size--the 31.5"-- may be a tad too heavy if you're goin to be spending an hour pruning. It would have also given me less options on storage. The smaller sized loppers would have given me less weight but also less reach on the other hand so that might be a little irritating when lopping the higher branches.

I tried this lopper out today and found that it cuts through green wood very easily. This lopper will cut up to a 2 inch branch, as is indicated in writing on the lopper itself. I tried one at least that thick, and yes, it cut it smoothly and relatively easily (then I cut that same branch few more times for fun). The lopper cut small branches with very little effort. As other reviewers have noted, the handles do need to be very far apart in order to get the blades open far enough to get them around a thick branch. This does pose problems when the branch you want to cut is in among branches you don't want to cut. It also poses a problem when the branch is above you, because as you move the handles apart, the lopper blades get further away from the branch (of course this happens when you are cutting a branch that is on the same level as you too, but then you can just step forward to close the distance). This lopper is great for cutting off old ratty-looking palm fronds to dress up the tree. I haven't tried it yet on my sago palms, but I do think that my hands will probably get into the stickers when I do because of the wide opening characteristics of the tool. Guess, I'll have to wear long sleeves and gloves for that task. The handles are not made of metal as one reviewer thought (maybe the product has changed since that reviewer got his), they are constructed of some kind of polymer plastic. There could be metal inside the plastic, but I am not convinced that there is. A problem with my old loppers is that the blades come loose from the handles, and I am pretty sure that this cannot happen with the Fiskars. I don't know how they will hold up in the long run, but I took it to the max on thick branches today and the handles did not warp or wobble. So, I think it will last for a long time if it is not abused.

I just received my Fiskars Power Gear Lopper - it is a winner all the way. I had a very old set (25yrs) and they served me well; but it was time for a change. I immediately went out and started cleaning up tree limbs - the power gear makes it a simple clean cut. My wife jumped on them and declared that she would help....of course I get the old ones, ha!!
